First Post

December 15, 2008

Hello,

This is my first (test) post here. I’m quite excited about the opportunity to lead a blog on my beloved Frontline website – about my favorite topic on journalism and trauma. Hope my enthusiasm will cover for my mistakes that you have to forgive – I’m not a native English speaker (I’m pretty good in Russian – but I guess it’s less popular around here).

The topic may sound quite dreadful – but trauma is in fact a quite unpleasant thing. And we better deal with it with more knowledge and care than just try to ignore it or its influence on our lives or journalists profession.

First, I would like to refer to my “alma mater” in these issues, the Dart Center on Journalism and Trauma, www.dartcenter.org where you can find lots of interesting and useful materials and discussions.
